it is similar in appearance to a large grapefruit. Typically, the fruit is pale green to yellow when ripe, with sweet white (or, more rarely, pink or red) flesh, and a very thick rind. The flesh of the fruit is often juicy and divided into 11 to 18 segments. Pomelos are very high in vitamin c and boost the immune system. They are eaten as a fresh fruit or as part of a fresh salad.
